OK, Meg, I totally want to meet you in person. Maybe someday! :) This was SO much fun to watch and I’m totally with you on 70s music ’cause that was all through my teenage years (yes, I’m that old lol). NOT into the “dog slobber” though. Thanks for such a great Fast Five, you two! :D

I really enjoyed this Meg and Phil! The 70’s music was a fun time for dancing and lots of great movies to go along with the era of the music.
Thanks for sharing! Lots of fun!
